Did You Know?


When Captain Randall is interrogating Claire, she expresses that he has a decent man within him still. Randall replies "It would be pretty to think so". This is the same line which ends Hemingway's THE SUN ALSO RISES. In Hemingway's novel and in this scene, it is a cynical recognition that that dream has slipped away forever. See more »


Brigadier General Lord Thomas states Claire has had a mesmerizing experience. The term "mesmerizing" was not yet coined as Frank Mesmer was born in 1734 and would not have been experimenting in 1743. See more »

Waited a while, worth it.
13 September 2014 | by iwanttoemailryanSee all my reviews

Fantastic. How boring the first five episodes were, I can hardly believe I stuck with this series. I am glad I did. What a phenomenal episode this was. Visceral, haunting, horrifying and performances the like of which I have not seen. The twist of the captain at the end, a little sudden but still just a captivating episode. I await next week withing longing, not trepidation as I did the first five episodes. Bravo, please keep it up. I hope this continues. Claire and the captain had just incredible performances. The last two episodes saved this series for me. I will be watching, for sure. More history will help, and the dark aspects of this story give it legs. Please, please continue and don't water the visceral feeling down.
